Event Description

Accompanying the symposium Producing Waste/Producing Space, the exhibition Tracing Waste examines a number of artistic works that trace the movement of trash and sewage. Ranging in strategy from mapping to performance, they experiment with different forms of social engagement, inviting spectatorship, rehearsal and participation in the movement of waste. By embodying and making visible otherwise invisible processes of waste making and disposal, the works in Tracing Waste propose that tracing is a crucial practice for re-imagining how society lives with its discards.
